It can be overwhelming to search for a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in an accident. In many cases, this may be the first or only time you will ever need the help of a personal injury lawyer. So how do you find the right one?
Experience, Experience, Experience
A more experienced firm will have a better understanding of exactly what the insurance adjuster needs in their file for the insurance company to pay out the largest settlement. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, ask these questions:
- How long has the lawyer been in practice?
- What percentage of their clients have personal injury claims?
Do they offer a free consultation?
Most law firms offer a free consultation or evaluation. Use this meeting to discuss your accident, and have any documentation you have ready – this can be a police report, pictures, medical treatment receipts, etc.
Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they don’t take money up front, and instead take a portion of the settlement. Ask questions like:
- What is the average amount of time it takes for a personal injury claim to settle?
- What are your fees?
- Does your fee change if a claim goes to court vs. settling before going to court?
Look at reviews
When you look at reviews for a personal injury firm, sort them by date so you can see the most recent reviews first. What are they good at, where are they lacking? Reviews tell the story of their former clients, so use them to help you decide on the right lawyer for you.
